Ladle can use donated items such as clothing, backpacks and blankets. Items can be new or used as long as they are clean. The donated items need to be brought to the Church (320 Date Street), we can not pick up. Donations can be left at the church office or placed in the Ladle container in the West Room. There is more demand for men's clothing than women's or children's. Below are some suggested items:
Our biggest needs are pants (jeans and casual), shoes (especially sneakers), sweat pants, belts, boxer underwear, jackets, and sweatshirts. All sizes are needed, but pants waist sizes 34–36, shoe sizes 10–12, and large to x-large in other clothing items are the most requested.
We primarily need pants, shoes (especially sneakers), and jackets. The most requested sizes are 8–10 in pants, sizes 7–10 in shoes, and M–XL in jackets and underwear.
We can always use coats, jackets, hoodies, etc.
Blankets and backpacks
We can use new or used (clean) blankets, ground cloths, and tarps. Backpacks and sleeping bags are always in high demand.
Our biggest needs are hair brushes, shaving cream, and nail clippers. We can always use deodorant, shampoo, lotion, razors, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.
